    ----------------------------
    Background
    ----------------------------



    Born and raised in England, Sophie grew up on an equine farm with her maternal grandparents. She nursed an intense passion for the magnificent four-legged creatures she was constantly around. She started riding before she could walk and the first thing she held was a curry comb. She had a special affinity with the animals and the ability to understand them and communicate with them. They would do whatever she asked and she began to be known throughout her county for her ability. Neighbouring farmers whose horses had behavioural problems would come to her for advice, and she would tell them what they were doing wrong, sometimes even doing a demonstration with her own pony.

    She was a contented girl, never questioning her parentage and why she had no father or mother. She instead dedicated all her time to her favourite animals. It wasn't until she turned seven and started going to school that the bullying started. Other kids made fun of her for the amount of time she spent with horses, often making neighing and snorting sounds around her and dubbing her “Horsie”. She was very upset but diverted that energy into her passion.

    She discovered her talent for show jumping at a very young age and spent a lot of time perfecting her technique on a course her grandfather built especially for her. She bagged first place in all the competitions she entered (except for one), garnering even more hate and jealousy from her peers. The bullying got so bad that her grandparents decided to pull her out of school and educate her themselves.

    The first major horse she worked with was Phoenix Rising. Phoenix was an abused horse who ran away from his owner and ended up on the Kennedy farm, tangled up in some wiring and badly injured. He wouldn’t let anyone near enough to help him and only Sophie managed to calm him down enough for her to cut away the wires. He had to be tranquilised and moved to the barn where the vet could work on him.

    Over the course of a few weeks, Sophie gained Phoenix’s trust, starting by feeding him and sitting outside his stall. Once he was comfortable enough with her that he didn’t spook or bare his teeth, she introduced her presence into his stall, grooming and massaging him, letting him know that she wouldn’t hurt him. When he fully recovered, she began working with him in the ring, gaining more of his trust until he allowed her on his back.

    Things took a turn for the worst when Sophie took him out on a trail ride for the first time. He spooked at the sight of a fallen tree and threw her off. Talented as she was at staying in the saddle, she was no match for his strength. He was a big horse and she was a little girl, only nine at that time. She broke a few bones from the fall and ended up in the hospital with strict orders from her grandparents to never go near Phoenix ever again.

    But Sophie refused to give up, going against her grandparent’s rules and working on him in the middle of the night when they were sound asleep. From the hours she spent with him, she learned that he spooked at anything resembling a jump and inferred that his previous owner had abused him to make him jump higher.

    She began from scratch again, building a solid foundation of trust with him before introducing him to obstacles. Slowly but surely, she helped him overcome his fear, using every setback as a learning experience until he could trot over ground poles calmly. Her grandparents were not pleased to find out that she’d disobeyed them but could not deny the fact that she’d got through to him.

    But that wasn’t the happy ending she’d been hoping for. Phoenix’s owner came after him and took him back forcibly. Since he rightfully belonged to her, there was nothing the Kennedy’s could do. His owner wasn’t selling him so there was no use offering to buy him. Sophie was heartbroken, all her work and time spent of him lost in one moment.

    For two months, the Kennedy’s tried to come up with a solution, seeing how morose Sophie was, but they failed. They didn’t have enough finances to hire a lawyer and charge Phoenix’s owner for abuse and they couldn’t buy him either. They were at the end of their wits until a miracle happened.

    Sophie was moping around with Maverick in a meadow when she saw her grandfather waving and calling to her. He had good news. A rich man offered a price so high to Phoenix’s owner that he could not say no. Sophie at first thought that was not helping the situation until her grandfather continued telling her that the new owner was giving Phoenix to Sophie. She only needed to pick him up from his previous owner’s center.

    She was over the moon at the news and utterly relieved to find that Phoenix still remembered her although he sported new wounds and fears from the abuse he’d been through while they were separated. It wasn’t until he was back at the Kennedy’s for a week and her joy had abated slightly that it dawned upon her to find out who this rich man was so she could thank him. Unfortunately, neither of her grandparents were willing to divulge that information to her, telling her that he wished to remain anonymous. She could see that talking about the subject upset her grandparents so she dropped it.

    After training him for a few months, Sophie entered her first competition with him and discovered his fear of large crowds, noise, and flashing cameras. It was a reminder of the abuse he’d been through, and though he was fine with jumping with only her back at the farm, he couldn’t handle everything else. He reared up at the entry gate and refused to go into the show ring. Sophie didn’t panic and with five minutes on the clock before she was disqualified, she managed to calm him down enough for him to go into the ring and jump the course. It was difficult with him being jittery and skittish but they completed it and came in seventh out of ten riders.

    With that new revelation, Sophie started again with him, working on that fear until it no longer frightened him. They entered another competition and came in first - to most people’s surprise - and put her on the radar of some riding academies and sponsors. She turned them down, preferring to go at her own pace and not be pressured to perform.

    When her Hogwarts acceptance letter came, she was conflicted. She didn’t want to leave her life behind, attached as she was to the animals on the farm. She worried that if she left, no one would take care of Phoenix. He wasn’t as accepting of other people as he was of her and she didn’t want all her work with him to go to waste. Knowing how much Phoenix meant to her, Sophie’s grandparents made arrangements and secured permission for her to keep Phoenix at the Hogwarts stables.

    With nothing else holding her back, Sophie headed off to a new chapter of her life, excited to learn about her abilities and meet magical creatures.



    ----------------------------
    Family
    ----------------------------
    Father: Trent Heart (Pureblood)
    Mother:  Alyssa Heart (neé Kennedy) (Muggleborn)
    Siblings: -
    Other: Graham and Amy Kennedy (grandparents)

    Trent and Alyssa met on the field while both were undercover. Alyssa was part of a mission that required her to work with Muggle cops to apprehend a Pureblood Auror suspected to leaking confidential information to Muggle authorities. She was responsible for getting close to the Muggle receiving the information. Trent, on the other hand, was assigned to the Pureblood suspected of leaking the information. However, because of miscommunication, neither knew that there was any other Auror involved in the case.

    It was in May that they arranged a meeting between the two parties for the payoff and exchange of information. It went bad when the Muggle party did not meet the terms of the deal. A fight broke out and Trent and Alyssa ended up duelling against each other in an effort to keep their own party safe, Alyssa using a gun so her cover won’t be blown and wandless non-verbal spells only when absolutely necessary.

    They managed to get their own party to safety but Trent suspected Alyssa of being more than who she claimed to be. He contacted the Auror office and, with difficulty since her cover was so deep her true identity barely existed, found out that she was also an Auror. He contacted her under the guise of arranging another meeting but instead gave her the code word that revealed his identity as an Auror. Together, they used this to their advantage and closed the case.

    Trent did not hesitate to try and get to know Alyssa better but she was reluctant because of their different blood status and the emotional rollercoaster that came with dating a fellow Auror. If she got emotionally attached to him, he’d be a weakness, a target for the many enemies she had. Though she did not doubt his ability to take care of himself, she wasn't sure if she could take the worry she knew would come whenever he went on the field. She was used to being independent, not giving her enemies any leverage against her.

    After months of maintaining a friendship with him she finally gave in to his persistent request to court her but not before she had a long talk with him. It was no surprise that Trent’s family disowned him for associating with someone of a lower status. But it didn't make much difference to him since his relation with them was already shaky when he made the decision to become an Auror instead of continuing the family business.

    They married and though they had their many arguments usually caused by the amount of time they had to spend on work, they were very happy together. Two years later, they decided to have a baby and Alyssa gave birth to Sophie. Alyssa resigned from her job to devote her life to taking care of her daughter. But nine months later, tragedy struck. An enemy seeking revenge managed to get to Alyssa. She put up a good fight, dealing damage and protecting herself. But even the most skilled Auror could only hold out that long when outnumbered 25 to 1.

    After her death, Trent, fearing his daughter’s safety, brought her to Alyssa’s parents in Canada and left her with them. He cut ties with them, not wanting to endanger them. He went on a hunt for Alyssa’s killers, seeking to avenge her but could not track them down. He kept at it though, devoting a whole room in his studio apartment to the case.

    Although he tried to keep his distance from his daughter, he could not endure the separation for long. She was the last piece of Alyssa he had and he would not let her go. He didn't compromise her identity by visiting her but he kept an eagle eye on her, making sure she was safe, protected and happy. From a distance, he watched her grow up, noticing her magical abilities at an early age.

    When it was time for her to go to a wizarding school, he ensured that she had a place in Hogwarts. It was easier for him to keep tabs on her in a place where he had more connections and where many people owed him countless favours he. Trent watched his daughter's progress and was proud of her. His only regret was that he could not be a true father to her.
